Abstract:

In 'Pirate Philosophy', Gary Hall considers whether the fight against the neoliberal corporatisation of higher education in fact requires scholars to transform their own lives and labour. Drawing on such phenomena as peer-to-peer file sharing and anticopyright/pro-piracy movements, Hall explores how those in academia can move beyond finding new ways of thinking about the world to find instead new ways of being theorists and philosophers in the world.
